Abstract: Astrophysical false positives due to stellar eclipsing binaries pose one ofthe greatest challenges to ground-based surveys for transiting Hot Jupiters. Wehave used known properties of multiple star systems and Hot Jupiter systems topredict, a priori, the number of such false detections and the number ofgenuine planet detections recovered in two hypothetical but realisticground-based transit surveys targeting fields close to the galactic plane b~10degrees: a shallow survey covering a magnitude range 10
